Heres the book blurb:

A locally produced guide to all of Brighton's pubs and bars:

The Definitive Guide to

Brighton's Best Pubs

An A-Z of every Pub and Bar in Brighton, independently rated by the Brighton Pub Jury

The book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Brighton is one of the most popular and attractive destinations in the UK and it is the ideal time to produce this publication while no complete guide to the pubs of Brighton currently exists.

The scoring system is weighted across seven categories for each of the destinations: Atmosphere (how does the location feel), Beer (selections), Barstaff (quality of service), Entertainment (live acts, games, quizzes), D├ęcor / Garden facilities and Food. Each of the destinations has been visited and marked by a select panel of Brighton residents over the course of two years. The information is constantly updated in order to produce the most comprehensive guide to Brighton’s teeming pub culture.

The book features an introduction, explanation of the system, a description of the top ten pubs and a guide to twelve areas of Brighton, with the best pubs in each. There is a section on the best pubs by category (e.g. the best pubs to go for food) and crucially the core of the book is an A-Z of every pub and bar in Brighton illustrated with photographs of some of the pubs.

In addition to all this there are eight suggested pub crawls, a section on drinking games, some pub jokes, a guide to the night-clubs of the town and much more.

The book will be pocket-size (A5), and approximately 200 pages. Target markets would include students, tourists, hen/stag nights, Londoners and locals, mostly for men aged 18-40.
